In the world, there aren’t many types of foods that everyone can commonly agree are delicious.
Most culinary experts might say it is because there are not many foods that can be made that everyone will enjoy, no matter what they are made of.
And that is what makes pizza great – because pizza can be crafted and baked in a myriad of ways, to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.
But why does pizza taste so good to so many for as long as it has? It’s science of course!
What’s The Science Behind Pizza’s Deliciousness?
It is all in your taste buds. The ingredients in the pizza appeal and are like stimulants to your taste buds. With every slice, the umami from glutamates in the ingredients triggers that fifth taste, making the pizza as savory and delicious as it was the very first bite.
So it goes without saying that pizza makers try to give you as much flavor as possible, by adding as much glutamate as possible.
Tomato sauce, cheese, beef, pork, chicken, and fish – all typical ingredients that make up your pizza – are all packed with glutamate and umami.
These toppings attack the taste buds enhancing the flavor, making it addicting and us wanting more. You could say that the glutamate is the perfect marketer for pizza and its deliciousness.
